Mike plays the hits for his fans

Mike Hurst is one third of the original Springfield vocal group, alongside Dusty and Tom Springfield, and you can see him in action at Buxton Opera House on Thursday, January 26.

They were the first British vocal group to have a Top 20 American chart hit in 1962, and the top group in the UK in 1961 and 1962-3, voted for by the NME readers. The Springfields were internationally famous, with hits around the world. Their final performance in October 1963 was Sunday Night At The London Palladium, before an estimated audience of 20 million.

It will be 50 years since The Springfields’ first US hit in April 1962, and in that time the hits recorded/written and produced by the original members have become the soundtrack to a generation. The Buxton audiences will hear not only the hits, but a lifetime of stories and anecdotes from someone who was part of the great British music explosion of the 1960s.
